Annnd another week rolls to a close. Can you believe we’ve reached the end of March? Time does fly.
On this very good Friday, I want to highlight a few Rock Stars:
Caron [At Goal Weight Watcher] dared greatly (in my opinion) by going to an anime convention with her daughter! And she had a good time! What a fun mother-daughter thing to do–Caron clearly has an adventurous spirit. I wouldn’t be surprised if their next adventure involves a tattoo of some sort.
“I am surprised you look on your efforts as being so minor. That’s the danger of comparison I suppose. There are times when we all try not to make ourselves, our work, seem more important than we are. It does help keep things in perspective if we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
On the other hand the life we live is vitally important to us and if you were to mark those things on a scale I’m guessing they would come up high on your personal list.”
You zinged me in the best kind of way, Margie Anne! You were right, I was trivializing things that ARE important to me, and I hadn’t even realized it. Thank you for helping me see that! (Side Note: Folks, if you’re wanting a taste of Hawaiian adventure to offset the non-Spring most of us are having, check out Margie Anne’s side blog on her trip to Hawaii. She and her husband are celebrating their Golden Anniversary, Island Style!)
Well-played, Rock Stars!
I had a Rock Star moment just this morning, while doing my Workout A. I’m still not used to doing larger numbers of reps, and I keep grabbing the weights I use for 8-rep sets. I did it again this morning in grabbing the 30-pound dumbbells for my chest presses and didn’t think about it until I got to the 10-count. Those last 4.5 reps were killer, lemme tell you, and try as hard as I might, I could NOT complete the 15th one. Not even with an unladylike grunt! (I did drop down to 25# ‘bells for the second set. I might try that combination again next week. If I can move my arms again by then.)
Did you have any Rock Star moments this week? Heed Margie Anne’s wise advice and shout ’em out!
With that, I’ll wish you a very Happy Easter weekend, if you’re observing, and a happy weekend in general if you’re not! I have asked the Easter Bunny to bring me an I.O.U. for a Carrot Cake Cupcake (to use when I’m able to get outside for some extra exercise) and a dark chocolate-peanut butter egg. I specifically asked for the small size. Wouldn’t it be awful if he brought me a large one?
